Saha: Spurs must strengthen this summer

Published Add your comment

Tottenham striker Louis Saha says it is "very important" that Harry Redknapp's squad is stronger - not weaker - next season, if the club is to mount a renewed push for the Premier League title.

The 33-year-old Frenchman completed a surprise move to White Hart Lane in the January transfer window, and in three short months with his new teammates, has already seen enough quality in the current group of players to suggest that Spurs have the potential to be future English champions.

Saha knows what it takes to win a title, having collected three winners medals during his time at Manchester United, and he is certain that, as long as the nucleus of players stay together, Tottenham have the ability to challenge at the top next year.

"I fully believe that," confirmed the Frenchman at the launch of his autobiography. "I've been in some squads now and I haven't seen as much potential - a growing club, changing facilities next season, and I think there are many good players.

"If things stay in the same dynamic, I'm more than positive."

Saha has been given a new lease of life in north London, and he credits his upturn in form in no small part to the coaching credentials of Redknapp.

"It's massive when you have a manager who believes in you and makes you grow very quickly as a player," he explained. "Confidence wise, it was amazing - that's for sure.

"He's got his eyes on trophies, he wants us to perform and to make sure that the club's winning things. So, when you've got that, you can expect things to move in the right direction."

Following Sunday's 2-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers, Tottenham moved back into fourth place in the Premier League table. They now have three games left to secure a Champions League spot, starting with tomorrow's trip to Bolton Wanderers.

"We need to win, that's for sure," concluded Saha. "We win three games, we are in it. That's simple.

"It's not trying to look at other teams and results. If you are focused on your quality and ability to win those games, it should be fine."
